Team PAPA D (Powering Against Parkinson's Disease)

Team PAPA D

Team PAPA D

In the spring of 2016, at the age of 37, Dan Morris was diagnosed with young onset Parkinson's Disease, a degenerative neurological disorder for which there’s currently no known cure.

One of Dan's main goals is to stay unrelentingly positive while enjoying the heck out of every day. Diet and particularly exercise have been shown to help slow the progression so he's focused on controlling what he can control and believes there's no excuse to miss a workout! With tremendous resources dedicated to the cause, Dan remains 100% confident that the medical community will eventually find a cure...but he's going to FIGHT it with everything I've got in the meantime.

Two years ago, Dan founded Team PAPA D (Powering Against Parkinson's Disease) and enlisted a group of friends and family to participate in the Civilian Military Combine as a catalyst to raise funds towards a cure. Last year, our ranks increased and we took on a Spartan race in Philadelphia. Cumulatively, we raised over $300,000 for Parkinson's research and I remain blown away, overwhelmed and humbled by the amazingly generous response.

This year, Team PAPA D can't wait to raise the bar.

Once again, Spartan Founder and CEO Joe De Sena has generously offered to waive the entry fee for participating members of Team PAPA D. That means that 100% of your registration fee, donations and fundraising will go DIRECTLY to high-impact Parkinson's research through The Michael J. Fox Foundation. We can't wait, and we hope you'll join us.

Stay tuned for sign up details. And if you can't join, but would like to donate, please use the link to the right.
